German Brass, the most renowned and award-winning classical brass ensemble in Europe, takes the audience on a musical trip to America and presents works of composers from America such as Leonard Bernstein (Candide Overture), George Gershwin (Porgy and Bess), Aaron Copland ("Hoe-Down"), Samuel Barber (Adagio for Strings) and Cole Porter (Kiss Me, Kate) - newly arranged by and for the members of the ensemble. This mix of classical music and jazz fits perfectly to the sound, which defines German Brass. On it's new album the ensemble virtuously performs the most beautiful pieces from Gershwin's opera Porgy and Bess to the world-famous Adagio for Strings by Barber. German Brass creates the most laid-back and swinging sound as you have never heard from them before.
